Overview

Investigating and exploring the structures, processes and theories of computational design this book looks at developing the use of algorithms to solve complex design issues. As architecture enters the new era of digital representation recent theorists of form in architecture have focused on computational methods of formal exploration and expression. For architects algorithmic design enables the role of the designer to incorporate both the unique features of the human mind as well as those of the computational one. Beginning with an introduction to the terms, concepts and ideas of algorithmic architecture the book proceeds to identify a theoretical framework within the discipline of architect discussed where appropriate from historical, philosophical and theoretical context.
